I walked down to the reserve and it didn't take long before I saw a flash of electric blue and there was my first Adonis blue of the year. They're beautiful little butterflies and very rare, having very specific habitat requirements. Yoesden is one of the local special places to see them.

|Small blue - they really are tiny|
|Common spotted orchids starting to flower. This one had a little crab spider on it.|
